Ejisu roads see massive overhaul ahead of by-election

General News
Ejisu bad roads under construction ahead of by-election

The government has initiated the rehabilitation of major roads within communities in the Ejisu Municipality, vowing to ensure the timely completion of these projects. 

Roads and Highways Minister Francis Asenso Boakye, accompanied by ministry officials, inspected the ongoing projects on Thursday, 18 April 2024. 

He dismissed suggestions that the projects were motivated by the upcoming by-election in the area.

The Ministry disclosed that approximately 32 road infrastructure projects are underway within the Ejisu Constituency, overseen by the Urban, Feeder, and Highway Departments. 

Mr Boakye said that the contracts were awarded over the past three months, while the late Member of Parliament for Ejisu, John Ampontuah Kumah, was still alive. 

He asserted that these constructions are not exclusively tied to the upcoming by-election. 

“Currently, about 32 projects are going on in the municipality, these projects include urban roads, Ghana Highway authority, and Feeder roads projects. I’m satisfied with the work going on, the contractors are some of the best we have", he noted.

“I’m confident they will continue to work very hard so that we can complete the project as scheduled. None of these projects was awarded in the last three months. These are not by-election projects, the past three years some of the projects have been going on. The MP who passed on was instrumental in making sure that these projects are designed and constructed. Rest assured; these are not by-election projects; these are normal projects the ministry is implementing", Mr Boakye added.

Contractors are presently engaged in projects spanning communities such as Achiakrom, Abankro, Donyina, Onwe, and Adako Jachie
